Trite observation given everything else, but Ardern' s press conference there was incredibly measured for the circumstances.

NZ police clearly seem worried that this is the start of a mini-campaign of mosque attacks, given that they've basically declared all mosques off-limits

Sad news coming out of NZ :(

Apparently the bangers cricket team was present there too at the time but escaped in time, thankfully

These extended reports are probably a bit bs with all the panic.

Regardless, this is going to be a really bad one by the end of the day. Jesus christ.

"there's never a second shooter" is a kinda a journalist meme but its my de facto stance on this

surely timing it for friday prayers all but makes it a terroist attack

it is 100% a terrorist attack, that is not debatable.

There are reports (I know) that the quality humans at Sky news over here are showing edited snippets of alleged footage, including the perpetrator in his car after the first mosque, and arriving at the second. Got to take any of this with a grain of salt at this early stage, but that would tie in with him acting alone.

No less ****ing horrendous, mind.

And **** the media, showing this ****.

Was about to say **** Don Jnr for using this as an opportunity to beat up on the media but eh, he's not wrong.
